Bonn, 7 March 2023. Three lawyers from Redeker Sellner Dahs have been singled out for commendation as “Legal All Stars” by WirtschaftsWoche. In a special WirtschaftsWoche publication, the three most highly reputed lawyers in each of 26 legal fields are picked on the basis of the opinions offered by competitors and a jury of experts every year. Dr. Frank Fellenberg and Prof. Dr. Olaf Reidt took the first two places in environmental and construction planning law. Prof. Dr. Andreas Frieser tops the list in the field of inheritance law.
Dr Frank Fellenberg, LL.M. (Cambridge) joined Redeker in 2001 and specialises in environmental and planning law. His practice focuses on environmental law advice to project developers and public authorities on major infrastructural projects, in particular encompassing the broader energy and transport sector.
Prof Dr Olaf Reidt specialises in technical and construction planning law. He advises clients on energy industry projects such as power plants, LNG terminals and large industrial structure projects such as trunk roads, airports and railways. Olaf Reidt became a member of the firm in 1992.
Prof Dr Andreas Frieser has been with Redeker since 1984 and is an expert in all matters relating to inheritance and foundation law. He advises and acts as counsel for private individuals, medium‑scale companies, foundations, associations and prominent individuals.
WirtschaftsWoche states the following with regard to the methodology used to choose the Legal All Stars: “Handelsblatt Research Institute (HRI) sent out almost 24,000 surveys to lawyers practicing in 26 specialist areas for WirtschaftsWoche. The largest group is made up of lawyers working in the field of corporate and labour law, with more than 5200 participants each, the smallest being sports law with 560 lawyers. A total of 77 lawyers from 54 law firms have been lifted into the ranks of the Legal All Stars. Lawyers were first asked about their most prestigious competitors, after which a jury of in‑house lawyers, professors, litigation‑funding institutions and consultants voted, assigned weights and added their comments.”
